Lutron streamlines Smart Lighting control

The new QuEst-D Quick Estimating and Design software application from Lutron Electronics helps contractors, distributors, and estimators to streamline their projects from early-stage estimates to final installation when combined with Lutron’s Vive Lighting Control solution and the Vive Vue app.

This product suite simplifies design and installation, delivers increased system flexibility, and puts greater control in the hands of both contractors and end users.

The QuEst-D software can help contractors be more competitive and efficient and is already making an impact in the field. QuEst-D is an intuitive, free web-based tool that automatically accounts for regional codes and estimated labour costs to generate a code-compliant, lighting control solution in real time with a suggested bill of material, pricing, and project estimate ready to present to the customer.

To use it, contractors just answer basic questions about their project – such as square footage, building location, and project type.

“Contractors are increasingly dealing with labour shortages and compressed project schedules,” said Rick Walsh, Lutron Product Manager. “Lutron Vive wireless solutions simplify installation and setup and now QuEst-D software makes design, bid, and project estimates easier too. With QuEst-D software, contractors can help their customers make an informed choice and deliver project estimates with higher confidence.”

The Lutron Vive solution not only offers simple and scalable lighting control for new and existing commercial buildings but continues to offer new products that enhance system capability. Connected Vive in-wall sensors were recently introduced for even greater system flexibility.

Paired with the Vive Vue app, facility managers have a solution that provides valuable data to help maximise both space use and energy use.
